David J. Fagone, 53, of Derry, New Hampshire, ended his life’s journey on Saturday, March 3, 2012 at Parkland Medical Center. He was surrounded by his loving wife Carla, family and dear friends. His 7 year battle with recurring cancers was fought with courage, hope and most of all love, teaching us how to accept his illness, with humor and unending faith that his tomorrows would be lived to the fullest. He was born in Arlington, MA and grew up in Medford. He was predeceased by his parents Rudy and Mary Fagone. His heart and soul was his Italian heritage, and he was proud of his family’s lifelong traditions. He graduated from Franklin Pierce College and was currently employed by Kronos Corporation as a Tech Support Engineer.
David loved every sport. He was an avid skier, with Center Conway being his second home and loved the snow, the mountains and the freedom of skiing. Amazingly, he skied at Cranmore just 3 weeks ago. David was a sports enthusiast and loved his New England teams. He coached many years in town for the Derry Recreation baseball and basketball leagues and also played on several of the local men’s softball leagues.
David is survived by his loving wife Carla, beautiful daughter Olivia and cherished son Michael; they were his universe. He also leaves his brother Doug and wife Mary, and brother Jim, all of Center Conway along with several nieces, nephews and cousins whom were very important to him. He taught us all how to live with love, humor, pride and faith.
A celebration of David’s life will be held on Saturday, March 10th, beginning at 10:00 a.m. at Holy Cross Church in Derry. There will be no calling hours. In lieu of flowers, donations in David’s name will be accepted by the Derry Little League, P.O. Box 747, Derry, NH 03038 to help fund their new baseball field. The Peabody Funeral Homes and Crematorium, 15 Birch St., Derry is handling the arrangements.
